An unwitting sacrifice. A spark to ignite the galaxy. Ten years before Commander Grant and his SR-X experimental fighter left the ground, the U.S.C. Defiance became the flashpoint for humanity’s First Contact War. While unprepared for the devastating assault from an alien race that was by all previous accounts peaceful, the crew will need to band together if any are to have any hope of survival. Forging within them a steadfast determination, they must go beyond their capabilities and stand united not as mere technicians, but as soldiers of humanity. With the only hope of a rescue light-years away, will they hold on long enough to warn the fleet of the war that is to come? A short story and introduction to the Mission:SRX universe. 11,100 words.

5 Stars!Reviewed By Rosie Malezer for Readers' Favorite
Matthew D. White's hard-hitting, sci-fi thriller, which acts as a prequel to the brutal war between interplanetary species, is filled with suspense and packs a powerful punch with each turn of the page. Every action portrayed in this short story is well-written and quite graphic, painting a clear picture in all respects, whether of the controls and layout of the space craft or the brutal execution of each crew member. While I am not generally a fan of sci-fi, I found Mission SRX: Before Space Recon positively riveting in the explosive, non-stop action which takes place between crew members with a seemingly simple job of cargo delivery, and an enemy alien species which will stop at nothing to seize what is on board. The portrayal of ruthless, blood-thirsty killers, which ambush those who are trained to protect their cargo and nothing more, is spine-chilling. I enjoyed Mission SRX: Before Space Recon and recommend it to sci-fi fans who enjoy apocalyptic tales which reveal unsung heroes and true warriors.
